  • Interview with Jangbu Sherpa

    Not many people can say they’ve spent two hours atop Mt Everest, watching a group of friends paraglide from the summit.

    Listen to this inspirational sherpa describe what it's like to climb Mt Everest for the first time. And find out how you can trek alongside him on a trip of your own.

  • Eye of the Tiger's Nest

    Look familiar? It should. Paro Taktsang is Bhutan’s most famous monastery, and was the setting for Bruce Wayne’s ninja training in Batman Begins.

    There’s a lot more to it than that, but as far as beginnings go, it’s a good place to start.

    Commonly known as The Tiger’s Nest, this temple in western Bhutan boasts a pretty colourful history.

  • How to pack for your trek


    Steve Wroe, our Himalaya Destination Manager, gives you a rundown on how and what to pack for your trek:

    When preparing to head off on a trek, packing is usually one of the last things we do.  Despite having packed for trekking/outdoor trips countless times, I still rely on a packing method I learned from a world-renowned trekking guru. Of course lists are good, but what if you forget to put something on the list?

    What sort of trek are we packing for?
